What are Chemical Peels Made of?
Chemical peels are made of a variety of helpful acids depending on the depth of the peel. When performed by a professional aesthetician, chemical peels are safe and effective at reducing skin conditions. The types of chemical peels are:
Light Chemical Peels
Using fruit acids, light chemical peels only go down a couple of layers and treat superficial conditions like mild scarring or fine lines. You may need multiple treatments for your ideal results.
Medium Chemical Peels
Using more potent acids like glycolic acid and Trichloracetic acid (TCA), medium chemical peels penetrate deeper to resolve pigmentation and moderate wrinkling.
Deep Chemical Peels
Using extra-strength acids such as carbolic acid, deep chemical peels treat more severe skin conditions and only require a one-time treatment. There are more risks involved with deep chemical peels, but the professionals at Baltic Beauty Center are experienced and knowledgeable in chemical peel applications.
Is There Any Downtime with Chemical Peels?
There is little to no downtime for more superficial peels, but deep chemical peels may require up to two weeks to heal. Most patients can immediately return to their everyday lives.
